Thoughts on my new hubby in the morning!
Thoughts on my new hubby in the morning!

When you’re doing a two person morning radio show, it’s like a part-time marriage. You spend a lot of time in a small room together, just the two of you facing each other for hours each morning. And like a marriage, you have to give/take equal parts of admiration, trust, compromise, and communication.

A lot of people have asked me how I like my new morning “husband” Blake. Well, since he’ll likely read this, I probably wouldn’t say I didn’t like him even if I didn’t, but luckily, that’s not the case. Blake is only my fourth partner in doing a morning show (third here in Portland), we bonded the quickest of any of my previous partners. We have a lot in common; our love of pop culture, sense of humor, dogs, TV binge watching, and food and drink! We’re also very different in age, sexual orientation, and childhood experiences. It’s a bit of an odd mix that honestly I wasn’t sure would be a good fit when the idea first came up.

Our first conversation lasted almost an hour, we were talking like old friends, and it just felt natural. I was just starting “Breaking Bad” and Blake had finished the series, so he became the person I texted “OMG, I can’t believe that just happened” moments to. By the time he came here to audition, we had a fairly strong bond.

It’s been a whirlwind six weeks since Blake’s arrival, working to find our timing and rhythm, how we both fit into the show, our individual and combined strengths, and working towards a fast paced, fun, can’t miss, morning show. And like any marriage, we’ve had a few growing pains, and there will be more. Sometimes Blake has an idea in his head but forgets to clue me in—or I do what I do best in my personal life, and just bust out with whatever I’m thinking, without regard to the direction the show is headed. If that’s the worst of our bumps, we’re doing alright!

I am having a blast in the mornings…. I sincerely hope you are having fun listening too!
